Tearrius George Announces Retirement

International defensive lineman Tearrius George is retiring from the Canadian Football League, the Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today.

"I am stepping away from the game to focus on a personal issue," stated Tearrius George. "I would ask for people to respect my family's privacy during this time."

Chris Jones, Vice-President of Football Operations, General Manager and Head Coach, said: “Through speaking with Tearrius, we were made aware that he was involved in an incident that has become a police matter. He subsequently informed us he has decided to retire.”  

As the police matter involving Tearrius is before the courts, the Riders will have no further comment on it.
